Fear is a natural response.
I think we all need fear to survive.If we are not scared of wild animals or natural calamities we will be hunted and killed by them.Even though the world popularizes foolish ideals of bravery like jumping of bridges or doing dare devil stunts,the real battles in life are completely different.Matters pertaining to principles can storm our life and create a mess.No amount of physical danger which we have experienced and learnt from, can teach you how to face the danger which leaps within us.I can go on expeditions to mountains and amazing forests,but nothing would prepare me once I turn inward.The amount of mistakes, we commit,are far more greater than what we face in the outer reality.Diseases,worries,phobias and other demons which lurk inside us can affect us and the pain we get from them cannot be escaped.

Christopher Reeves in his biography describes how he had the wrong ideas of bravery.As a “superman”,he did all his stunts and was so confident that life could not break him or scare him.A small accident ,when he went for riding bought his life to a stop.

What is Maya

Narada once asked Krishna …

Lord, show me Maya…

Few days passed away, Krishna asked Narada to take a trip with him to the desert.

After walking a few miles,Krishna tells Narada that he is thirsty.He asks Narada to fetch some water for him.Narada obliges and starts searching for a house where he can find water for his master.At the distant horizon, Narada could find see a well built house.He knocks on the door..A beautiful young girl opens the door.He gets mesmerized by her beauty.He starts talking to her.As the days pass by ,the talks lead to love.Narada approaches her father and asks his daughters hand for marriage.The father was overjoyed and made him a partner in the family business.As years pass by,Narada and his wife live happily.Narada's life gets filled with happiness.He becomes a proud father of two children.After his father in law passes away,Narada inherits the business and all the associated property.Twelve years roll by and there was a huge flood which strikes the desert.The beautiful house crumbles down.Narada places one of his children on his shoulders,holds the other child's hand and with also holds the hand of the trembling wife.As the force of the water pushes the child who was sitting on the shoulder, a cry of despair arises from Narada's heart.In shock he places his hands on his face and starts crying. His wife and his other child get swept away by the rushing water.
He starts crying wildly and screams for Krishna ….
Krishna appears before him ..He asks Narada whether he could find some water for him.It has been half an hour and Krishna was thirsty.Narada tells Krishna that it was 12 years and not half an hour …Then Krishna says

"This is Maya"

Insignificance and its Implications

If I die today…it does not make any difference.I am not a pessimist.We are like components in a huge machine.If I die I will get replaced …quite easily.The company where I work,will hire someone else.My desk will be given away...My laptop will also be donated to some poor soul,who has been fighting with a desktop for a long time.My parents will miss me …but time will surely make them forget..The same it is with few of my friends also.

I remember a scene from the movie Matrix…A screen full of numbers..each number is a person…If you disappear,the system doesn't shut down.A new person will take the number.

Only Religious People SWEAR

The art of using "Fuck" in everyday conversation
By Osho

When I was younger, I would have swear-ed with pride,if things did not go my way.Now that I am a adult..I am not able to swear...Its a handicap...if you are single,8-5 working slave for a big corporation.If you are religious, all the swear words which shall be used...would be related to sexual activity,so any words used at your enemies would give you immense they would rot in hell because of bad sexual misconduct.

When you are not religious you know that there is no heaven or hell and no God..Then if you assault a person by saying "Fuck you"...Its a blessing in disguise,so that their desperate desires get fulfilled fast.
